This is a Leaf-cutter bee (Megachilidae), probably Coelioxys genus

Could be. I can't find any images of that species with such white stripes though. ? Will keep looking. Thanks as always for your help! :-)

I have found on this site sth similar determined as Apis mellifera lamarckii or Egyptian honey bee, see if it's maybe that!
